Bouchard suspended two games for high-sticking

NEW YORK – Minnesota Wild forward Pierre-Marc Bouchard was suspended for two games without pay by the NHL on Sunday for high-sticking Columbus’ Matt Calvert in the face Saturday night.

The suspension will cost Bouchard $44,108.

With 1:06 left in the second period in Minnesota’s 4-2 victory, Bouchard hit Calvert in the face with his stick, injuring the Columbus player in the process. Bouchard was assessed a double-minor for high-sticking.
